    We live in a world where people often complain about how pigeon-holed or trapped they feel by some of their successes...it's very refreshing to read this quote. I wish both of them all the good fortune in the world.

    Also, because I work in the industry:
    Death by Library Book
    was my favorite fight scene in the movie.

    "Shhhh!" - Boban Marjanovic's "Ernest" to John Wick :laugh:

    Oh also, here are the homages I think I caught on to, others?
    1. Fighting Boban (a basketball player) = Game of Death, Bruce Lee vs. Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
    2. Wick putting a gun together using different parts = Tuco's similar scene in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly (especially listening to the barrel click as it rotates)
    3. "Guns, Lots of Guns" - obvious reference to The Matrix final assault scene (not to mention all the Matrix talent in these films)
    I think I noted one or two more but I can't recall them right now. I'll try to watch it again soon and update this post.

    1. EDIT - oh obviously the whole "escape to Casablanca" rationale

    Can you believe a couple brought their baby to see this film in a Dolby Cinema theater? Of course, the baby wasn't watching the movie as he/she was too busy trying to sleep or cooing or crying.

    Nothing surprises me these days. Is there a *sigh* emoji?

    To be clear, my problem with bringing a baby to a movie theater is a baby's tendency to make noise, thus, bringing me out of the movie and lessening my enjoyment of the movie theater experience.

    I think they ought to throw people that are that dumb in jail. :laugh: OK, that may be a little extreme but I've seen people bring babies to 'adult' movies and I marvel at how rude people could be. I'm not exactly the most polite person in the world and I wouldn't even conceive of bringing a baby to a non-kids movie. And I get the idea that a person's life shouldn't be put on hold because they have a child but c'mon, have some courtesy for other people.

    The baby at a movie is an issue more due to audience disruption than "scarring" the kid,

    An actual baby won't be impacted by the violence in "Wick". He/she might get upset with all the loud noises, but the movie's graphic content won't be an issue until he/she is a couple years older.

    For reasons no one can remember, my stepmother thought it was A-OK to take my then-four-year-old brother to "Alien" in 1979.

    THAT scarred him!

    I assume the theater is letting them bring the baby in for free. If they charged the baby a full admission, people might think twice.

    It's still cheaper than a babysitter!

    To offset the disruption the cost for a baby should be subsidizing everyone else’s ticket.

    So no one is asking about the elephant in the room:

    Why didn't they cast
    Carrie Anne Moss
    as the adjudicator???

    Yeah, that was a missed opportunity, but Dillon was good.

    Their fight scene was fun to watch too including a part that was a mistake, but they left it in because it was quite funny.

    Fucking awesome.

    Each film builds on the last and expands the Wickverse further.

    The choreography in this film is insane. Terrifically entertaining.

    It’s a fascinating world and can’t wait for the next film.

    “Yeah.....I’m pissed!”;)
